A heavy defeat on the road

Llandudno sailed into the second round of the SWALEC Plate and brought an end to Bro's unbeaten start to the season with a bang. The hosts crossing over seven times plus six conversions and three penalties which included on form full back Ryan Pike's tally of 26 points - while the visitors could only manage a solitary penalty kick.
With confidence high, Bro, although missing some key players in key positions, started the match with some vigour and were awarded a penalty early on for offside - centre Ian Roberts converting from 30m but from then on in it was Llandudno who dominated and went on the offensive.
The first try came on 23 minutes as second row Billy McQeenie crashed over Pike adding the extras.
Bro were continually being penalised and Pike made them pay with three penalties before half time and the sides went into the break with the score at 16 - 3.
Llandudno scored immediately from the re-start Pike scything his way through the defence to score and also converting the try.
From a set scrum inside Bro's half a quick ball out to right wing Nick Maxwell who cruised over to score under the posts Pike adding the conversion.
Hooker Nick Irlam charged onto a short pass to score next - the try unconverted.
Bro were under constant pressure and were unable to gain any momentum in attack for the first time this season their defence was breached too many times.
Llandudno captain Morgan Owen scoring his first try for the club from a rolling maul up towards the try line - Pike converted.
The hosts added another two tries before the final whistle through Ashley Jones and Kelvin Davies with Pike converting both.
It's back to league duties for both clubs next - Llandudno travel to COBRA while Bro entertain league leaders Pwllheli in what should be a mouth watering encounter - matches kick off at 2:30pm
